Cross-platform native C executables? Sweet.

"Cosmopolitan Libc makes C a build-once run-anywhere language, like Java, except it doesn't need an interpreter or virtual machine. Instead, it reconfigures stock GCC and Clang to output a POSIX-approved polyglot format that runs natively on Linux + Mac + Windows + FreeBSD + OpenBSD + NetBSD + BIOS with the best possible performance and the tiniest footprint imaginable."

Gentoo and NetBSD ban 'AI' code, but Debian doesn't – yet

The problem isn't just that LLM-bot generated code is bad – it's where it came from.

Compared to statements by the likes of pointing toward and as "the death of coding," these decisions from established projects show that we still need skilled work from individual humans for the best results, not machines.

After a search in the NetBSD packages for lightweight web browsers, the winners are: vimb, dillo, luakit and netsurf.

Dillo's new release 3.1.0 still hasn't landed, so no HTTPS there. Luakit is very neat, extremely lightweight, minimal, has vim-like bindings and would be perfect if it weren't for the constant white flashing between each pageload when using a custom, darker CSS. NetSurf is also quite neat, with tab support for heavier sessions.

The winner for me is vimb, which although leaving tabs to the window manager, has vim-like bindings, is pretty minimal and does not cause flashing when switching between pages on a custom darker CSS setting.

Honor mention to Arctic Fox, a Pale Moon clone that hits peak nostalgia with the pre-omnibar Firefox look. No theming, not as lightweight, but going strong at 29.5k commits since 2018.

It's alive! Though I had given up yesterday, after a few tries today I got NetBSD 10 running. Though booting is still a bit flaky and I am investigating freezes, I may resurrect this one after all. I could replace the Sony VAIO keyboard, but I just like this one's keys much better than the Sony's island keyboard.

A close-up picture of a silver LG 2008 laptop on top of a desk. Sunlight is coming through a window, there's a black mug to the right of the laptop. Two amber and one blue LEDs are lit. The screen shows the NetBSD boot screen, with the flag logo and the following text:

The screen shows the NetBSD default window manager, CTWM, with an orange solid color background, a context menu, a window list and a terminal open. The terminal has the tmux multiplexer running two panes split horizontally. The top pane is following the system log, with one acpibat0 workqueue busy message and syslogd messages stating the previous message was repeated several times. The bottom pane is looping every second to print the current date, time, system uptime, user count and load. The date is May 16 2024, 18:00.

Hey @netbsd and @jaypatelani ! I got pretty sick and tired of not having portable non-vm , so I was looking into pinebooks...

But apparently people had troubles with bwfm drivers and it was recommended to use -current.

Is it still a valid recommendation? Is the stuff in 10.0 already? Did anything change in general?

Tried replacing a 2010 Sony VAIO with a 2008 LG machine simply because it had a working keyboard. Sadly it did not go so well and slowly started to refuse booting.

Back to the Sony VAIO, which was originally running OpenBSD, yesterday I got to test both NetBSD and FreeBSD on it. It was the first time I tried NetBSD on metal, so it felt like completing the holy trinity of modern BSDs.

A glimpse of the NetBSD Guide told me the full install comes with X pre-installed and pre-configured, you just startx. And indeed it worked as expected, no need to actually download and set it up. The X environment was slightly tweaked and had a very minimal and retro vibe to it.

I didn't want to bloat it much, but might end up installing Wayland just to see what is the current state of it on NetBSD. After that, FreeBSD also ran just fine, and this time I went straight to Sway.

A little bit disheartened, since for the time being it seems I cannot boot the LG at all anymore. The Sony will still require an external, compact keyboard that can just rest on top of it when not in use, but I really wish I could have resurrected that one.

NetBSD bans use of Copilot-generated code

The NetBSD project seems to agree with me that code generated by "AI" like Copilot is tainted, and cannot be used safely. The project's added a new guideline banning the use of code generated by such tools from being added to NetBSD unless explicitly permitted by "core", NetBSD's equivalent, roughly, of "technical management".

So far, my netbsd research goes well on my RPI4.
- I can run firefox (with a small fix to avoid tab crash)
- I can view/edit documents with Libreoffice
- I can listen music with mplayer/VLC
- I can play videos with mplayer/VLC
- mdns works fine (i use a lot in my home network)
- i can use ZFS (with the ARC memory patch i dont have any issues with 4GB)

i tried to put all of this on this busy screenshot, with a freshly compiled nscde environment.

A busy screenshot shows:
-xconsole
-system info app
-firefox
-libreoffice
-vlc player
-terminal with htop

So I just spent an enormous amount of time trying to get X11 to run on this 2008 LG laptop that I am hoping to make usable as a machine to basically access docs on when doing stuff on my main machine that makes that impossible.

I was really bent on getting X to work because I figured (a) it would be more lightweight than Wayland (b) it would run better on such old hardware.

Nothing seemed to work though. Initially I threw NetBSD on it, because it seemed very proper for a machine that is very close to a toaster. I gave up and wiped it with FreeBSD without even trying Wayland. After much suffering, I decided to try and see how Sway would do instead. It just ran on my first try and I felt silly.

Also very fun would do it all again anytime. I am not sure what is the state of Wayland on NetBSD but maaybe I'll try and see?

Two weeks to BSDCan - let's talk Tutorial Days!

We're only two weeks out from BSDCan! Read our latest update here: blog.bsdcan.org/2024/05/14/two We could use some help with registration, so please volunteer if you're interested in stuffing bags and getting to know other volunteers and the conference team.

Let's talk about the first half of the conference: Tutorial Days ​ This is some of the most affordable professional training out there and we're grateful for the talented presenters who have offered their services to the community. We hope you'll check one or two of these sessions out if you're attending in person!

If you get in early, Tuesday evening before the these tutorial days start there will be an informal meetup, the famed "Goat BOF," at Father and Sons (fnsottawa.com) where you can get a bite and say hello.

For our first tutorial day on Wednesday, you can sign up to learn the basics of the BGP with Max Stucchi, and dig deeply into the routing protocol that makes the internet work! (indico.bsdcan.org/event/1/cont) Or join Tom Smyth to learn about managing OpenBSD networks with NSH, a command-line interface for network appliances. (indico.bsdcan.org/event/1/cont)

Thursday's tutorials include the conference classic introduction to PF by @pitrh, Max and Tom (indico.bsdcan.org/event/1/cont) and our con chair @mwl will present half day tutorials about TLS (indico.bsdcan.org/event/1/cont) and the hottest of topics: running your own mail server (indico.bsdcan.org/event/1/cont).

At 5pm on Thursday, after the last tutorials, head on over to the 90 University residence hall and step through the lobby and into the hacker lounge, where we will be handing out registration badges and packets to earlybirds. At 6pm there will be a brief informational Newcomer's Session you don't want to miss, and we hope after that point that con regulars will group up to help take first-time attendees out to see the town! This room will stay open later into the evening so you can hack or visit with friends. Or hack with friends!

「… Browsers, Network device drivers, Video card device drivers + rendering pipelines. These are the things that small operating system development teams always struggle with. They move quick, and they are complex to implement and maintain.

If you’re working on your own operating system, heed my words. Outsource the above to compatibility layers and borrow the code from NetBSD or Linux. Us using FreeBSD’s wireless card drivers via compatibility layers was the best choice the project has made in a long time. …」

I just wanted to try/test a patch from netbsd-users mailing list, related to ZFS ARC sizing on an RPI4 with 4GB ram.
Managed to patch the sources and complile kernel/modules. (NetBSD 10 Release)
However, when I try to import the pool, I get this error. The disk was used with FreeBSD 14R before.
I guess, there is no easy/quick fix for this.

MIR-NETBSD# zpool import -f  zBSD
This pool uses the following feature(s) not supported by this system:
	com.klarasystems:vdev_zaps_v2
cannot import 'zBSD': unsupported version or feature

NetBSD 8.3 released, marks the end of the 8.0 branch

NetBSD 10 and NetBSD 9.4 were only recently released, leaving one final branch to receive what will be its last update: NetBSD 8.3. NetBSD 8.0 was originally released in 2018, so this final release marks six years of updates, which is a good track record, especially now that two newer main releases are available to choose from.

Is there any user running via out there?

My recent try raises issues with missing css files. Weird thing is FreeBSD PLIST does not reference them either. And compiling from source does not seem to solve the problem.

I was sending a minor PR to the uutils / project regarding a breaking test on and thought its a good opportunity to record a video and:

- talk about the uutils/coreutils which is a rewrite of coreutils in Rust
- show the env and do some coding in it
- Show the flow of sending a PR on

The interesting thig is: none of these seem to work under Linux, while they work under (and probably - haven't tested yet).

🧑‍💻 NetBSD On The State & Future Of X.Org/X11
@phoronix

「 The bad news is that to have applications running we require access to a larger open source ecosystem, and that ecosystem has a lot of churn and is easily distracted by shiny new squirrels. The process of upstreaming stuff to X.Org is an ongoing process, but it's likely we'll run into things that will never be suitable for upstream 」

Today, I learned something thanks to !

So, this NetBSD Foundation post:

mastodon.sdf.org/@netbsd/11238

Led me to this article:

blog.netbsd.org/tnf/entry/x_or

Which led me to the lock (1) utility:

man.netbsd.org/lock.1

And finally to this command:

tmux lockc

... which allows one to safely lock a tmux session. I really like it so far.

This is the kind of depth and nice little surprise you don't get with commercial OS. Every day, you can learn about small utilities.
